New York Comic Con: Last Airbender Celebrity Guests

M Night Shyamalan will be attending NYCC as a Media Guest

PLEASE BE AWARE:
Racebending.com will not have an official presence at NYCC. We do not encourage people to protest and/or antagonize M. Night's panel. Protesting at this panel will not be beneficial. The Last Airbender is already out and protesting M. Night as an individual will not send the message that Hollywood as a whole needs to hear. The more people who show up at this panel, the more important M. Night will feel and the better he will look. Attempting to humiliate or 'tear him down' will only end up making protesters - and our common goal - look pointless and childish. Instead, enjoy your time at the convention and ignore him...

Want a better alternative?

Giancarlo Volpe is attending NYCC and will be on a panel! Volpe was the Annie Award winning director of various episodes from the Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series. As a supporter of racebending.com and an all-round talented person we definitely encourage people to attend his panel (time and place TBA) and show your support on any new projects he might be embarking on!

Check out his DeviantArt for updates.
